Work in Progress Wednesday- Spring/Easter Floral Yarn Wreath

My love of these little flowers just continues to grow. They are so easy to make and I just love using them for everything, especially wreaths. This is my first wreath where I’ve used them all the way around with no other decorations.

Here is a picture of my newest wreath that I’ve been working on the past 2 days.

Today my work consisted of wrapping the wreath. It takes awhile to wrap, but I enjoy doing repetitive tasks for some reason. I guess it gives my mind a chance to wander and think on other things. I also had the brilliant idea to add a little something to the center of each little flower (not shown in the picture). Anyone want to take a guess what I added?

Sneak Peak- Snowflake Plastic Canvas Tissue Cover: Work in Progress Wednesday

After doing a bunch of crochet work lately, my creative juices are flowing for plastic canvas again. I’ve designed several new items lately, including a couple of magnets and a new coaster set (if you want to see them, stop by my Facebook page.

But today I wanted to share with you my very newest creation, my plastic canvas snowflake tissue cover! I currently have 1 side done. I’m hoping to finish it in time for this Saturday’s craft fair.


The snowflake is glittery, but not in an obnoxious way. There’s a weird shadow in the middle too (but just in the picture). But you get the idea. I took the picture late at night so I didn’t have very good lighting.

So what do you think of the design? I personally love it! I’m trying to decide if I should offer other colors besides the blue. If I do, what color(s) would you suggest?

Finished Friday- New Plastic Canvas Patterns

Wow, can you believe it is soon November?! Today we will be starting our homeschool year!

Besides keeping busy homeschooling my little one, of course I have been busy crafting. But in addition to creating actual items, I’ve also been writing and selling some plastic canvas patterns. I now have 6 patterns listed on Etsy, with great reviews! I had listed a couple, and then a sweet lady contacted me asking if I do specific ones for some items in my shop. I told her I would be happy to make them up for her. It is still a work in progress, but I wanted to show you the projects that are available so far. Here are a couple of the patterns I have available:



If you love doing plastic canvas and are looking for some new patterns, be sure to visit my Etsy shop for these patterns. Also be sure to keep checking back as I will be adding more patterns.

Crochet Duck Lovey- FO Friday

Well, I haven’t had much to say lately, but I just had to pop on here to show you my latest creation! Introducing……

Feathers the Duck!


This is the fist lovey blanket I’ve ever made, and I’m so excited that I created it myself! Maybe I’ll figure out how to write a good pattern and not just my shorthand ways lol.

I’m going to use him as a basis to create some more animal loveys, so stay tuned!

Have a terrific weekend!



Baby Boy Christian Diaper Wreath- Finished Friday

Well, here it is, another Friday! And to start a long weekend too! That means more crafting time, right?!

I’ve been blessed with several orders on Etsy for my diaper wreaths in the couple of months. All of a sudden I found myself running low on them. So I’ve managed to complete one to add to my inventory. This one is a Christian theme for a baby boy. I absolutely love it!

This is available in my Etsy shop, I also love doing custom orders so please feel free to contact me for something just right for you!



Baby Girl Blanket, Hat, Scratch Mittens Gift Set- Finished Friday

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve written last. We were on a month-long vacation out west, which was wonderful, then it was getting home and settle back in, and then laziness I suppose! So it’s time to get back to it! But I have definitely been busy crafting the entire time! Hopefully over the next few weeks I’ll get to show you most of what I’ve been up to.

For today, I’m sharing this adorable baby girl gift set that I just finished yesterday- complete with a stroller blanket, hat and scratch mittens!


The blanket pattern can be found at

The mitten pattern can be found at

The hat pattern is my own that I made to coordinate with the blanket! I’m so excited to be finally creating some of my own patterns. I’m trying to decide if I want to write up the pattern to put on Etsy or not.

The gift set can be found in my Etsy Shop, as well as just the hat/mittens as a set, or even the hat by itself! Here is a direct link to the listing: baby girl set. I also have some done in a yellow/white and green theme which is great for a boy or girl! Go check them out!

Lining Crocheted Bags- Work in Progress Wednesday

Several months ago I crocheted two small pouches that would be perfect to put inside a purse to hold smaller items. But I never got around to lining them. I also have my Stripes and Shells bag ready to line. Last night I finally sat down and sewed the liners for all three bags and today I will be working on stitching them into the bags while I visit with a dear friend. Sound like a great day, right!? Below are the bags:


I would love to see what you are working on this week! Please feel free share a picture or leave a link! You are welcome to stop by my Facebook page and share as well!

Military Bookmarks- Work in Progress Wednesday

I’m still on my bookmark kick! Monday I posted my completed American flag bookmark, and today I am sharing with you my Army bookmark, a work in progress. I plan to do the other branches as well, but I’m still designing them (in my head!).

Here is the Army one so far:


I think I’m liking it, but I’m not sure yet. I guess I’ll see when it is completed.

What are you working on this week?
